    Hello!

    Lord willing and the Creek don't rise I'll fire up my new 22.5" Weber Kettle in a few and begin my adventures in smoking.  

    I've read a lot of stuff on SMF over the past few weeks and that, combined with all the Youtube vids and other forums I've been perusing, has my head spinning.

    Therefore I decided that since I plan on spending every weekend the next few months (sorry Mrs. Carbine!) smoking meats I'll start out real simple, keep notes, and then adjust accordingly.

    Got two slabs dusted with dry rub and going to do my best to get the grill dialed in for low and slow before I throw'em on.  Fingers crossed for some TBS. 

    Stubbs briquettes, snake layout, grill probe thermometer, cherry wood and a pan of hot water as a heat sink. 

    Thanks for reading!  

    Pics to follow!

    Had a hard time getting the weber dialed into the temp I wanted but sitting at 225 now.

    Hour and a half in and getting ready to start mopping them.

    Definitely a learning curve with the weber but I'm having fun!

    Thanks! It's definitely a learned skill.

    I started with a row of briquettes 2 wide with 1 row on top and after the first hour of waiting to get to 225 realized that I'd need to add more to the ring. I've been toying with the vents and coals as little as possible but have removed the lid way too often I'm certain.

    Here's a pic about 3 hours in:
